The world famous Joffrey Ballet stages a bold contemporary version of one of Shakespeare's most beloved tragedies, Romeo and Juliet. The Chicago Philharmonic will be on hand to perform Sergei Prokofiev's powerfully dramatic score, which includes the famous "Dance of the Knights" (aka "Montagues and Capulets"). This timeless story of two young lovers caught between their warring families unfolds against a striking multimedia backdrop, which depicts three different political eras of the 20th century. Choreographed by Krzysztof Pastor, director of the Polish National Ballet, this vibrant new telling of Romeo and Juliet is "stunning ... truly magnificent" (London's The Telegraph). Learn More

Outstanding venue, musicians ~ had not heard/seen Susan Werner before so invited a friend for serendipitous birthday celebration and we had a wonderful evening.....Ms. Werner is creative, humorous, spontaneous and multi-musically talented. The harmonica player was amazing also. Bravo!
NPR Music has called Susan Werner “empress of the unexpected” for her ongoing exploration of musical genres. She began with the American Songbook-style compositions of I Can’t Be New, then the Agnostic Gospel project of 2007 and the chamber music experiments of 2009’s Classics. You’ll be one of the first to hear Susan’s latest endeavor with Chicago’s native language – the Blues. She’ll also play songs spanning her illustrious career.
Susan will be joined by Trina Hamlin on percussion and harmonica and Gail Ann Dorsey on electric bass.
